Exporting Workshop Coming on June 18th to Springfield

Filed under: SRDC — admin @ 11:59 am

If your company is currently exporting or seeking to learn what it takes to sell in the global marketplace, a workshop on “Exporting Fundamentals” will provide expert training on being successful and avoiding costly mistakes.

It will be held on Tuesday, June 19th from 8:30am to Noon at the Howard Dean Education Center, 307 South Street, Springfield, VT in cooperation with the Vermont Global Trade Partnership, U.S. Commercial Service, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Export-Import Bank and the Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center. The workshop will be led by Michael Allocca, President of Allocca Enterprises, and world renowned international trade expert.

Topics covered include due diligence, knowing your customer, terms of sale, export documentation, and record keeping strategies and responsibilities.

“This is a great one-stop opportunity for a comprehensive review of what it takes to navigate the global marketplace,” said Brent Raymond, Vermont’s Director of International Trade. “Whether you’re new to exporting or want to review best practices, this will be time well spent. We receive only the highest feedback from participants, whether they attend to learn these important concepts for the first time, or have many years experience and are attending as a refresher.”

The workshop is being sponsored by KeyBank and presented by the Vermont Small Business Development Center, Brattleboro Development Credit Corp., Green Mountain Economic Development Corp., Springfield Regional Development Corp., Allocca Enterprises, and the Vermont Agency of Commerce’s Global Trade Partnership.
